    Looking at a GT86 today

    I think weather manual or auto, this is a car that drives best when in the higher rev range so as long as you are doing this, it will still be fun Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    Ideally i would prefer to do the whole thing at once as just mentioned. Just to be a little OCD. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    I wouldnt even think a filter is necessary but this is up to you. Just the manifold is fine. If going new, then it is correct that going to td will be best value option at approx 1500 all in. On the used market, going manifold and remap can be significantly cheaper Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    With the brakes you can replace them with any cheap ones from eurocarparts. I swapped out the oem pad for some cheap pagids and they were fine. A high flow cat alone wouldnt be worth it in terms of power gains. Many people go decat with an aftermarket manifold and leave the secondary cat in place and this will pass mot. There are plenty manifolds out there. If new is your things then that's up to you but there are constantly used parts flying around on this platform for you to source.

    HKS Spec-L - anyone else have this issue?

    Yeah it's most likely how far it how unfar its pushed into the hangers. I had this with my cat back too though a different system. Just wrestled it into place lol Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    Clutch for Fi car

    In that case, at that level I would highly recommend the xtreme stage 1. Wont regret it. I know many recommend the exedy but I haven't tried it myself, but having experienced this one, I wont bother trying others. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    Clutch for Fi car

    I'm using an xtreme stage 1 clutch from fensport. Very similar to oem but much better I feel. The clutch is very low which like. After depressing the clutch, hardly have to lift off because its moving. I live in a high traffic area as well and it's more than comfortable. Highly recommend. Might be worth checking the turbo kit you are going for and just making sure the xtreme 1 clutch torque limit is suitable for whatever kit you are going; presumably td Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    Aftermarket seats

    Seems such a headache. So would I be right in assuming I can get any aftermarket seat and get it mounted with say a buddyclub mount assuming that's the correct item Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

    Aftermarket seats

    What aftermarket seats are you guys running? Watched some videos and some reading but the whole set up is confusing me. I'm probably just over complicating from seats to getting the rails to bolt em down. The stock seats I feel are more suited for slim build and I am quite wide and find they just aren't cutting it for me. I use the car mainly for street driving so ideally something that can move backwards and forwards to get access to the back. I've seen some of the recling seats but they look a little not 'supporty' enough. So was looking for something inbetween. Also, are harnesses the only way? As if possible I'd like to retain the factory seat belt Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
